The borders for tables that you create within PowerPoint are thin lines by default.

First of all, if you use Table Styles, then some borders may have been set to be invisible. So first of course, you need to set them to be visible since there’s no sense in thickening an invisible border. Once borders are visible, you can make changes to their appearance such as changing their color, line style, or the thickness of the table borders. We will now explore how you can make table borders sport dashed or dotted lines instead of simple thin lines.
